After so much positive energy being focused on our beloved elephants at the Global March event, I felt sure that I would see lots of elephants this week. I was so convinced, that when I set out for my weekly drive into the Timbavati Game Reserve, I gave myself an extra hour to get there. I should have given myself more time. I met my first ellie shortly after leaving the tar road. When I got to the dam, there was a herd of eighteen enjoying a refreshing drink and a splash. I followed them as they moved off and crossed the dry river bed, and found another big boy enjoying a snack of grass and leaves in the shade. On my way home, I found another herd of eight foraging in the tall grass. Twenty eight elephants in one morning- incredible!
